One Things the Gospels Never Say About Heaven

In the last post I looked at every verse in the gospels that mentions heaven.  Every single one.  Now, imagine that you were going to record and examine everything said in your average church about heaven.  How much of it would be about the souls of the faithful going there someday?

But when you look at the gospels, exactly none of the verses that reference heaven are holding it out as the eventual home of righteous souls.  None.

How did our rhetoric move so far away from the language of Jesus?
